Recipe – Cajun Meatloaf Casserole

Among the tasters, the flavor the peppers brought to the dish was of special note. For those people who aren’t into spicy – you might want to cut back on the cayenne, but this was a hit among my non-low carb taste panel.

4 tablespoons butter
4 large chopped onions
4 chopped green peppers
2 teaspoon salt
Olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon cumin
3 lbs ground beef
3 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar-free ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Fry up the vegetables in the butter and olive oil until tender and just beginning to brown. Then mix the beef with the rest of the ingredients in a shallow baking pan – use the pan you are going to cook in as the mixing pan and you save washing another dish. Mix (with your hands – make sure the cooked vegetables have cooled enough that you don’t burn yourself). Flatten to cover the entire bottom of the pan – don’t bother to try to shape it into anything. Cook in a 400 degree oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or when the top is nicely browned and the mixture isn’t too moist – you want most of the liquid to be evaporated – no puddles.

Quite a nice and complex flavor when you are looking for more than just a burger. Fine on induction, just don’t overdo it.

  1. WOW, now this sounds GOOD!!!! Thanks for sharing this, I just printed it out. Gotta go get some peppers, but may have this for dinner if I make it home in time.

    Are you a member at StellaStyle? What’s your handle? Love you blogs. Great information!


  2. Ya know – I’d forgotten about this recipe myself – part of my initial reason for starting a blog was to have a place to keep my recipes – then I started cluttering it up with my observations and opinions…

    I’ll have to make this one myself.

    I’m not a member of StellaStyle – I did buy his books – I’ll have to check into that.

    Thanks for writing.
